If you use the K Desktop Environment with the X Window System, you will have access to the K File Manager. Despite its name, kfm is actually a Web browser (see Figure 3.3). However, it has been tailored with functions that make it useful for manipulating files and directories. Like its GNOME counterpart, it is also the program that manages your desktop icons. You can bring up the kfm client by selecting Home Directory from the K menu or by selecting the home directory icon on the panel. You can navigate to different directories by clicking on folder icons (or the up arrow as needed) or by typing a file path in the Location: box.
